My 6-year-old sits in front of me and looks at me with his big brown eyes. The first time in his 6 years that he was exposed to preparations for, and hearing of, the history of the Holocaust. The incomprehensibility was tangible and visible in his eyes when he asked, "Mommy, my heart is sad. Why didn't the Jews come to Israel?"
Yesterday our flags were lowered to half-mast as we commemorated the Holocaust. But in just a few days, our wonderful blue & white flag will wave at full-mast and proudly proclaim: From the Holocaust to our nation's Rebirth - Am Israel Chai!
We have a land - our land - and the people of Israel live!
Support Israel with our 3 in 1 Yom Ha'Atzmaut package: A food package for Ethiopian immigrant families - a Soldier's package and a surprise for needy Israeli children.
For your unique gift to Israel you will receive a certificate on your behalf and a small blue & white gift directly from Jerusalem!
